Glow Sticks

For $1.00 per kid, you can have a night of fun and entertainment with very little effort.

Visit your local dollar store or Michael's, and pick up a pack of glow sticks for each child.

Open each pack, then activate all the sticks. Hand them over to your kids and turn out the lights.

This is what I did tonight. My girls have been running around with their glow sticks for nearly an hour now.

For a bit of added fun, pick a room that you want to decorate.

Clip the tips off of a few of those glow sticks so that the liquid can come out.

Stand in the middle of the room with the lights off and shake each opened stick vigorously.

Let the kids enjoy their new starry room.

Oh - and don't worry - the color will fade in a fairly short time.

That sounds like fun. I would never have thought of cutting open the sticks to get the glow juice everywhere. Does it leave any marks/shinny spots on the walls/ceilings?

Yes, that looks like a fun filled activity for the kids. And it's also inexpensive. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

It's been awhile since I've gotten the kids glow sticks. I think I'll pick up some soon.
